An alleged former member of the Church of Scientology has reportedly told Radar Online that plans are in motion to discredit Katie Holmes following her divorce from Tom Cruise.
Samantha Domingo told the gossip website that instead of being ex-communicated from the Church, the actress will be discredited.
“Disconnection is the main weapon of Scientology”, said Samantha, who left the Church after 24 years.
“Katie would have been ex-communicated normally, and behind the scenes she probably already is. Internally, the wheels are in motion to discredit Katie. We have moles that are pretending to be good Scientologists who report back to us on the outside. I’ve seen internal memos about Katie.”
Samantha, who has spoken out about the Church on various media outlets recently, was once married to Mexican singer and former Scientologist Placido Domingo Jr and joined the church with her ex-husband.
However she claims that when she left in 2009 she was immediately labelled a ‘Suppressive Person’ which is defined as those whose "disastrous" and "suppressive" acts are said to impede the progress of individual Scientologists or the Scientology movement.
She claims that Katie had done the right thing when it comes to daughter Suri, six. Former Scientology spokesperson Mike Rinder told The Hollywood Reporter, "Katie Holmes is probably the biggest suppressive person out there right now."
“Tom, if he were an ordinary Scientologist, would be ordered to disconnect from Katie and because Suri will be living with Katie, he couldn’t see her either.”
“But because Tom is so high-profile, it would create a total furore if the public knew he was cutting Suri off. This is an example of the church at its most hypocritical.”
